I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with Kirkland's (a home decorating store), but I found some great stuff. I sure hope it is ok to post these pics.

I walked in just to look around for ideas for my future Tiki Room, and found the following wall plaques (measure about 4x6) and a bunch of Pineapple Candles (about 6" tall). The plaques were $14 for a set of 4 and the candles were $.97 each. They also had all their "Pacific Paradise" items on clearance. The pacific paradise design is colorful parrots and greenery. I picked up the entire collection (over $300 worth) for just $65. If you are looking for some fun decor, you might want to check them out.

I'm happy and now I have a definate theme for my Tiki room.

Those plaques are very cool. Never heard of Kirkland's.

Say, are you going back there anytime soon?

I would go back and pick you up a set, but I didn't see any more. The store specializes in clearance and that kind of stuff. They also carry a bunch of neat East Indies stuff if you are into wild animals and elephants. They have a Tiki Face Birdhouse on their site, but I didn't see it in the store.

Here is their website if you want to look around it. They also have a store locator on their site.

Hey, Those plaques look like the same images that were on some plates and mugs I saw at Kohls recently (on sale). Is it possible that the mainstreamization of tiki is already on it's way out?

I didn't find those plaques, but there is a pretty swell looking tiki birdhouse...

yeah Spy-Tiki, they were at our local Kohl's as well as local Aaron Bros. stores. I received the "Zombie" one as a gift.

Thanks Littlegiles! We have a Kirkland's here and I stopped by today after work and got a set. They were 14.99 like you said but the candles were 2.99 on clearance so I passed on those. I appreciate the info dearly...

I'm so glad people are having luck with link I provided. You have all been so helpful with my questions, and I have learned so much from reading past posts. It feels good to be able to help out. Now I just have to find me some inexpensive tikis and I'm well on my way.

Just got done hanging them, if someone is seriously wanting some let me know they had afew left. And as for Littlegiles, with you trying to build on your collection- I found word of mouth and letting people know. Before you know it people have tiki stuff somewhere in their house and/or when they're out and about they look for ya. I do the thrift store shopping all the time but the hunt is a hunt but well worth seeing a tiki or a relic when you do come across so good luck. I also built up some of my collection on ebay too.

I have the zombie plaque from Ebay ($10), but never found the other two I like (Pina Colada and Mai Tai. There are no Kirlands in CA.
